Resources for those affected by Covid-19
Covid-19 has caused unprecedented disruption to businesses, particularly in the start-up sector. As a start-up business in the US ourselves, we wanted to help both those impacted by lay-offs and the companies still trying to hire through this crisis.
This is a difficult and stressful time to be in the market. We have aimed to pull together a list of useful resources but if we can help more directly please get in touch. We’ll aim to update this page regularly as we see or hear of new opportunities.
